Wisdom comes from other people.
Comedian, musician and double bass playing troubadour Grant Sharkey, endlessly travels the UK. Meeting wonderful minds in all walks of life that he learns from.
Each episode focuses on one such person in Grant's sphere that brings something new, a travelog of where he is at the moment, a little current affairs and comedy, plus some music from the back catalogue, guests or from future releases.
The aim of this podcast is to look to others to help define ourselves - we'll meet musicians, clowns, political rivals, spiritual gurus and super-regular extraordinary individuals all of whom have something important to say, whether they know it or not.
Hobo - traveling worker.
Sapien - wise.

    Hobo Soapybums!

    Ive just noticed the podcast has had over 10,000 listens in it's life. Thank you so much!
    I'm on track to get the book finished and then I can focus on something else - all in a bid to displace the energy I'd be putting into touring if there wasn't a pesky rona going about.
    FEELING GOOD and ready to birthday next week. :)

    Sadly we couldn't hook up the interview this week - so here's a chat about videos, books, music and politics. Plus the advert Dave Allon and Dan Parkinson made for Dan's mum's shop. It's brilliant!

    A little round up of the week gone and the week to come - the album is done, but I definitely wish I was going on tour with this one. News of the gig last week with Mr.B The Gentleman Rhymer in Portsmouth and news of what's coming this week.
    Album preview song 'MOBS' - with vocals from Dave Allon, Lisa Groves and Lauren Harrold. ENJOY!
